MANCHESTER, Ky. (WTVQ) – The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet (KYTC) has announced $681,553 in discretionary funds for vital resurfacing work on two county roads. Resurfacing repairs address existing surface cracks, potholes, raveling, and base failures.
The Jackson County Fiscal Court is responsible for administering the work, and KYTC will reimburse the county for the projects.
“Discretionary funding allows Kentucky’s rural communities to maintain and enhance local roads,” said Sen. Albert Robinson. “I look forward to improved driving conditions for the residents of Jackson County.”
The funding will allow for roadway improvements to two roads that provide access to 100 homes and businesses.
“The improvements to Upper Dry Fork Road and Maulden Branch Road will have a direct and immediate impact on improving the daily quality of life for Jackson Countians,” said Rep. Goforth. “This is money well-spent that serves a vital public need.”
Resurfacing work will address:
- Maulden Branch (County Road 1181) from milepoint 0 to milepoint 3.293
- Upper Dry Fork Road (County Road 1408) from milepoint 0 to milepoint 3.916
